The long-tail costs of a data breach – Week in security with Tony Anscombe


Understanding and preparing for the potential long-tail costs of data breaches is crucial for businesses that aim to mitigate the impact of security incidents

A successful cyberattack can affect an organization in many ways, but the way the organization handles the incident extends far beyond the immediate aftermath. Indeed, the long-term impact can significantly add to the financial burden and may involve regulatory fines years after the breach occurred.

This has been the case with Blackbaud, a data management company that has just been slapped with a fine of $6.75 million by US authorities, including for allegedly failing to “provide timely and accurate information to those impacted by the breach”. Also this week, two federal contractors paid a total of $11.3 million in civil penalties to the US government over cybersecurity lapses.

Watch the video to learn more about the potential legal and financial repercussions facing companies that fail to accurately report security incidents.
